+1. More money for R&D for Porsche's heart and soul: sports cars.

I must admit the Panamera is kinda cool looking. I'm anxious to see it without the body camouflage.

looks zzzzzzzz

they are even using the same 987/997 door handles.

I was hoping for a very high end sports sedan like the Maserati Quatrroporte or a Bentley. Looks like we are getting a big Lexus instead.

I just read in Christophorus (sold on amazon.com) that they have already begun assembling the four doors at the factory.

I dont like it (or the cayenne). But if this helps diversify their revenue stream and helps to ensure long run success (and the profit $$ get sunk into product development/ improvement) I am a big fan.

Looks like a Maxima in the back, Lexus from the side. Interesting to see the final version.

It's pretty awkward looking, but I have no desire to own a beemer so I kind of like it.

so far i don't much care for the panamera. maybe once we see it without the disguise, we'll feel differently. it's going to be a tough sell when this will be your competition: http://www.autoblog.com/2007/04/19/shanghai-showstopper-bmw-cs-concept/
